Knowingly or unknowingly, everybody is continuously looking for the solution of body, mind and soul issues. However, one doesn’t have any access to the main source of answers unless looking within. Just imagine how it will feel to be the master of your own life, joy and peace rather than constantly feel like the pawn of other people and situations. Get a firm ground to find out the source of answer to important issues of life and experience of meditation through various classical and contemporary techniques.
Yoga Essence's venue has a garden and is surrounded from all sides by many huge lush green trees with beautiful Himalayan mountain view. Each room features an en-suite bathroom with western toilet and shower with hot / cold water, and AC (at 80 USD extra in loco).
In this course, you will experience and be trained in many different meditation techniques and exercises that have been developed or recommended by yogis, Shiva, Buddha, contemporary masters like Gurdjieff, Osho, Sufi Mystics and others along with self-growth techniques and more specific life training topics, such as:
Some of the techniques and exercises are more active, others more passive. Some are done with a partner, some alone, some are as a group. Some techniques use the senses (sight, sound, and touch) and all will help you to connect with your inner world.
This will involve consciously exploring the possibilities beyond the familiar center that you live in and function from. You will need to be open to and welcome new dimensions of life that will begin to unfold and manifest as you move within.
All these methods are done in a light and joyful way so that you may dance and celebrate the learning process and transformation. At the end of this course, you will have the skill to share the same with others.
Meditation teacher training course is an opportunity:
In the middle of the retreat the participants will undergo into seven days of silence to deepen the experiential and transformational aspect of the retreat where the participants cannot communicate with the outside world including phone call or texts, social media, emails and so on.
The silence itself is for personal growth and inner journey, hence, sincerity is required. Please make sure to make all the necessary arrangements accordingly before participating in the retreat.
After two full intense weeks of experiential and transformational practice, the last three days will be totally dedicated for teaching practicum, one-to-one counseling sessions, specific guidance for personal inner journey and question/answer sessions. This approach is because Yoga Essence believes that meditation is not like many other technical skills but needs to be felt and lived before to be shared and transmitted to others so the teaching practicum will come on the last part of the course. Although during all length of it, the students will already have sufficient knowledge about meditation practices and their application.
Notes: The above daily course schedule may change as per need.
